I have my favourite dish and I knew I'd be raving about it here, the South Indian Garlic Chilli Chicken, but nothing prepared me for the Cheese and Chilli Samosa as part of the Trio of Samosas starter. Fantastic. I highly recommend for great quality food and a level of customer service you wouldn't believe

Been here several times and although the food has always been fantastic, occasionally when the restaurant has been busy they have not been able to cope. Now though it's always busy and they always cope. Last week we couldn't even get in! Tonight had to get there early and we weren't disappointed. Well done chaps!

Qarma is my go-to restaurant in Leek and the wider area. Whether for friends, family or as a couple - there is always something in the menu to wow you, the good is always cooked extremely well, and the flavours are streets ahead of the traditional hot/korma dichotomy. The Persian lamb biriyani is a personal favourite! The restaurant could benefit... More

We were seriously overcharged! A regular occurrence here apparently, what a shame. Food nice but no one like being blatantly ripped off.

Sorry to hear about the experience. We do not try and rip people off as you suggest - you may be surprised to hear mistakes do happen and we do make them - and we will try and learn from it. However where i take offence is that I recall clearly that although you had an additional round of drinks... More

Great food, portion size could be improved a little, especially the Naan Bread which is quite small. Onion Bhaji were really good though. On the whole, it is a lovely restaurant with authentic surroundings, good service and is reasonably priced. We will be returning !

We've come here a few times because of the fantastic service and food! It's the best Indian we've had. The food is of impeccable quality and has a large variety from Bangladesh to their own unique takes like the Tikka Burger! I'd highly recommend the stuffed peppers to start. Myself and my family went for my dads birthday, we let... More
